Backstage Travels

All the world's a stage…

Thanksgiving away….

on November 23, 2012

Well, if you’ve been looking at my craft blog recently, you know that I’ve been steaming for a short time about my room steward throwing away my entire stock of new cross stitch thread. Also, my mini swap stuff came, and it cheered me up a little bit. Mostly because it’s awesome. My nerd friends on the ship are jealous.

Anyway, this was my first Thanksgiving that I can think of that I was away from any family at all. They served turkey and stuffing on the ship, but it wasn’t the same at all. First of all, rice instead of mashed potatoes? Ew. Also raisins and dried apricots in the stuffing? Double ew, even besides the fact that I hate dried or cooked fruit, and that’s both. Gross. I did have some pretty good chocolate cake though. And in Cozumel on Wednesday, I got to video chat with my family for the first time since my contract started. That was pretty cool. Other than that, a routine is cutting its way through my life. I’m not sure whether that’s a good thing or a bad thing.
